Unless you’re a fan of British comics and pop culture, chances are you won’t be familiar with 2000 AD’s comic hero Judge Dredd unless you’ve seen the 1995 Judge Dredd movie starring Sylverster Stallone. 2012′s Dredd starring Karl Urban and directed by Pete Travis is NOT that movie. And that’s good. Travis, Urban, and screenwriter Alex Garland take the character back to his roots and deliver a supreme Judge Dredd movie that properly introduces the iconic character to an American audience and offers a damn good movie while it does.
